Prayer to Jesus and Mary for Mercy

Columban Daily Prayer
March 29, 2022

Lord Jesus Christ,
eternal and merciful God,
Creator and Redeemer of all,
listen to my prayer.

For the love You bear
to those who ask forgiveness,
look on me with mercy,
as once You looked on Mary Magdalen,
and on Peter who denied You.

Look on me, Lord Jesus Christ,
as You looked at the thief on his cross
and on every sinner whom You have ever forgiven.

Look on me, merciful Lord,
as You looked on Your Mother, Mary,
standing in sorrow beneath Your Cross.

Let me feel in my heart her compassion for You,
and let my eyes weep for Your sorrows,
caused by my sinful life.

Call me back from the darkness
to my Father's house,
give me a new heart
and a place at Your side in the banquet
You have prepared for me.
